what is Labiaplasty?

A labiaplasty is a procedure performed at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, to restore the look of the inner and outer vaginal skin. The surgery involves the reshaping, trimming, and evening out of the labia minora or majora to correct abnormalities, an overly large labia, and other cosmetic issues. Not only can this surgery improve the aesthetic quality of the genitalia, but it can also bring more comfort while performing certain activities and wearing tight clothing. If you're in the Louisville, KY area and are looking to regain your confidence and femininity, then we invite you to consider a labiaplasty procedure. The first step is to call and schedule a private consultation where Dr. Mizuguchi will answer all of your questions in a discreet, professional way.

am i a candidate for labiaplasty?

Ideal candidates will be:

  • Women who have enlarged, uneven, or a disproportional labia majora and minora
  • Women with enlarged vaginal folds who have pain during sexual intercourse and difficulty wearing tight clothing
  • Women who desire surgical intervention to rejuvenate their genitalia
  • Women with realistic expectations for their outcome 

how is labiaplasty performed?

Consulting with our plastic surgeon to perform this delicate surgery is the optimal course of action. While many OBGYNs have the ability to surgically eliminate excessive skin present in the labia, they do not have the practiced skills of a plastic surgeon who is versed in the aesthetics of contouring the labia. With many years of experience, Dr. Mizuguchi will be able to offer the best results that you will love with little to no scarring. Labiaplasty can include two different kinds of surgeries. One surgery includes trimming the inner fold of the labia to make it proportionate to the outer fold. The second surgery involves a laser to reshape the entire labia. Female genital reshaping is cosmetic by nature and can result in beautiful, lasting results. It has become one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for women in the United States.

how long is recovery after labiaplasty?

After surgery, tight clothing should be avoided so the area can appropriately recover. Scarring following labiaplasty is usually unnoticeable. Symptoms such as chronic irritation and sexual discomfort will be significantly reduced. After surgery, you should avoid sexual intercourse and strenuous activities such as exercise for about 4 – 6 weeks. This procedure allows for the vaginal area to look and feel normal, giving you your self-confidence and health back.

Labiaplasty FAQ

How much does a labiaplasty cost?
Vaginal rejuvenation surgery costs will be dependent on several factors. During your consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi, he will understand your concerns and goals before developing your custom surgical plan. Once you have made your choices for your vaginal rejuvenation surgery, Dr. Mizuguchi can start to estimate your costs. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery takes several payments, and we can help you find low-interest financing.

Should I choose a plastic surgeon or OB/GYN?
As you research surgical vaginal rejuvenation, you may find that most OB/GYNs (obstetricians and gynecologists) offer labiaplasty. Although most OB/GYNs are capable of performing a labiaplasty, they may not be your best choice. An OB/GYN will be able to remove loose skin from your labia; however, an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Mizuguchi will focus on the aesthetics as well. This ensures minimal scarring and that the final color, contour, and symmetry all look and feel natural.

Will vaginal rejuvenation surgery cause insensitivity?
As with any surgery, you may have short-term numbness in your vaginal area for a while. This should dissipate as your skin and vaginal lips heal. For those concerned about sexual sensitivity, it is important to realize that labia rejuvenation addresses the vaginal lips and not the nerves of the clitoris. A skilled surgeon like Dr. Mizuguchi with many years of experience performing labiaplasties will avoid the clitoris so that a loss of sensitivity does not occur.

What is the recovery process like after a labiaplasty?
Before your procedure, Dr. Mizuguchi or a member of his team will explain what to expect after your labiaplasty, plus suggestions to speed your recovery. You should expect some swelling and bruising in your vaginal area plus a certain amount of discomfort right after your surgery. You need to stay home for at least a week before returning to light activities. Dr. Mizuguchi will assess your progress in your follow-up appointments and let you know when you are able to resume sexual activity.

Are there nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments?
There are nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments that may help to improve mild to moderate vaginal laxity. However, vaginal rejuvenation surgery is best for dramatic improvements to re-shape and tighten your labia. In your initial consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi, he will discuss your options and give you recommendations on what will meet your goals.
